  • First use only ice. It is for acute pain. Then in 24 hours, use ice for 15 mintues, heat for the next 15 mintues and keep on doing that for the next 24 hours. After time, it should get better. I know, I have had chronic neck pain for 10 years. Yes, I can pretty much anything but this advise is also coming from not just me but from my phyically tharaphist. Never use heat on acute pain. Best of luck! Also, use Advil instead if you really need to. Asprin is not strong enough for the pain.

  • Go to the dr. You could have hurt it and need to get it checked out.
